Critic Reviews for This Sorrowful Life

I actually liked that Merle's death was a little pointless. Sometimes people try to be heroes, and just fail and die. It sort of sums up his whole life: a frustrated tragedy

All in all, a wonderful 40-minute story. Too bad the script was for a 60-minute one. Still, we're more than ready for the war to start.

"This Sorrowful Life" ultimately doesn't amount to very much...

Obviously, Merle's story dominated this week, but there were a couple of other good plotlines at the prison as well.

This was Merle's episode. To be honest, it's been Merle's series.

It was at least an interesting march to the inevitable.

This week, I got my wish and more besides - not only do we return to the prison and Rick's dilemma, but we're also treated to a fascinating character study amidst all the usual trappings of gore and zombie thrills.

This new patient, philosophical side [of] Michonne doesn't exactly match up with the silent warrior that she was for the early part of this season, but I'll definitely take this version over that one.

Goodbye, Michael Rooker. You deserved better than you got, but at least your exit was memorable.

Episodes 14 and 15 have been relatively weak ones leading up to the end of the season.

Norman Reedus and Michael Rooker killed it in the acting department.

Every character on the show suddenly decided to make every possible bad decision they could make.
